My ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD sister has to do her mandatory school work remotely from home because of lockdown. Tonight, my mum and I discovered that the app she has to use for class contains
MICROTRANSACTIONS.
Let me repeat that: microtransactions being put into an app that my little sister needs to use to receive her school assignments and participate in her education.
Basically, this is an app where the teacher uploads assignments for kids to do and every kid has a little monster that they use as an avatar in the virtual classroom. You can unlock new skins and customise your monster but it costs REAL MONEY.
Kids don’t need this kind of peer pressure. They already have to deal with these god damn transactions in all of their video games. They don’t need this in their VIRTUAL CLASSROOM APPS.
PLEASE STOP PREYING ON CHILDREN WHO ARE TRYING TO DO THEIR SCHOOL WORK.
My sister does not need to spend money customising her in-app classroom avatar. She is trying to do her maths assignments. She is a CHILD.
Why are microtransactions being put into TEACHING APPs that children are using for MANDATORY WORK during a PANDEMIC????
Abolish capitalism and all of these god damn parasites hurting our kids. Holy hell. 😡

Here’s something cute
When lockdown happened in the UK it happened very suddenly. At the law firm I work at, our office building emptied overnight when everyone was told to work from home. No time to clear our desks, no time to bring office plants home.
Fast forward three and a half months - everyone assumes that their plants are dead.
But then! An email goes round! It’s turns out that one of our security guards is a florist, and -
-the security team has moved EVERY SINGLE PLANT from all 12 FLOORS of our office building into the cafeteria. It’s been turned into a temporary greenhouse. Cacti and succulents and spider plants and terrariums and potted ferns
AND! Each plant has been INDIVIDUALLY LABELLED by hand with post-it notes with name and desk location so the plants can go home after lockdown ends
To give some indication of the scale of the endeavour:

If you zoom into the centre right photo you can see one of our security team happily waving
The plants are being taken care of tenderly. They get sun and water and are spending happy times with other plant friends

Covid
Matthew had been enlisted to return as a doctor to fight the virus. He had paused their creature research to instead work on a vaccine. Diana was kept home with the twins, they had returned to Oxford and Matthew kept Diana locked in the Old Lodge. He was barely sleeping and had stopped feeding staying up all night to do research. Diana sighed as she watched her husband working himself into a state of frenzy unable to help him.

call me bitter, but personally I think all the people in congress and the white house who
constantly called covid-19 a hoax
hid it from us in the early months
refused to do anything to stop the spread
politicized wearing masks
held huge parties
fought tooth and nail against providing people help
should be last in line for the vaccine. as well as all the people who protested against lockdowns and masks
